Research Interests: My main research interest lies in behavioural ecology of tree-dwelling bats – particularly in understanding cooperative behaviour and group decision-making of bat groups during movement. My research aims at integrating field ecology with modern statistical tools. My publications has a strong link to conservation – they help to understand processes relevant for the protection of endangered species and suggest directions for management of forest habitats.
